Tim Carroll, Ecosystem & Sales

As a seasoned HPC veteran, Tim Carroll is focused on expanding Cycle Computing’s influence, capabilities, and market share through customer collaboration and ecosystem development. His goal is for Cycle to enable its customers and its partners to remove any barrier to addressing the huge questions presented by society and the new data-driven economy.  Making more compute and storage resources available to the broadest base of the research community will ultimately result in better science and better business.

The premise of ease of access to compute, was born out during his previous role as a global executive at Dell.  Beginning in 2007, he ran its North American HPC efforts.  Over time that evolved into global responsibility, at points adding enterprise servers, Big Data and Cloud into his organization.   During his tenure, Dell was the number three provider of Intel Architecture X86 clusters worldwide and each year his team grew both revenue and number of new customers.  Dell customers and partners across academia, government and industry demonstrated time and again that when limits on their compute and storage capacity are removed, so too are the limits on their capability to tackle complex questions.

Since 1994,  Carroll’s career has focused exclusively on disruptive and high performance technologies; holding management roles at Digex, RLX Technologies, Linux Networx, and Platform Computing. That breadth of experience has produced a respect for the the challenge of implementing new solutions and the critical need for collaboration between multiple technology partners to provide a single solution to a customer.  But with 20 years of trial and error, valued relationships with customers and partners, and the passion to solve hard problems, Tim is wildly enthusiastic about the future for Cycle.
